Subject: Not bad
Not a great comedy by any means, but facinating to watch. I loved seeing life from back then.
Subject: I liked it.
this I my opinion is one of chaplins funniest, he keeps standing in front of a camera while someone else is trying to film. at his anoying best, novel idea in 1914.
Subject: The Tramp's first appearance
Not much happens in this film, but itÂs important from an historical standpoint. This is the first time Chaplin wore the ÂTrampÂ costume. This is a classic example of the kind of films Keystone made in its early days; find an event, go there, turn on the camera and Âdo something funny.Â OK, Chaplin missed that last part of the memo. But heÂd get better. ItÂs sort of amazing when you watch this Â ChaplinÂs second-ever film Â and then some of his feature length work that heÂs was still doing a lot of the same gags.
Subject: Not as wonderful as "the kid" but still amusing...
I downloaded the MPEG 1 which works great through WMP, but tended to skip/freeze up a lot in realplayer. Not sure if that's just my computer, but if you're having the same problem I'd give it a shot.
I was astounded that this short had audio. Not the funniest Chaplin movie I've seen, but neat to watch.
I downloaded the mpeg1. Pretty good shape considering its age.
